Electronic Tools for Translators, Paperback


Electronic Tools for Translators offers complete explanations of a wide range of software products, information resources and online services that translators now need to understand and use.

Individual chapters run through the origins and nature of the internet, the many ways of searching for information, and translation resources on the web, CD-ROMs as information sources, computer-assisted terminology management, the use and construction of corpora, translation memories, localization tools, and the incorporation of machine translation programmes into the translation process.

Austermuhl explains all these tools and resources in a clear, step-by-step way, suggesting learning tasks and activities for each chapter and guiding the reader through the jargon.

Examples are drawn from English, French, German and Spanish.

The book can be used as a text in regular classes on computer-assisted translation, in translation practice classes, as well as for self-learning by professionals wishing to update their skills.
